Delhi Metro Rail Trial Run in Gurgaon

Delhi Metro Rail Trial Run in Gurgaon
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda flagged off the Delhi Metro trial run from Gurgaon Friday afternoon amid much fanfare and applause. The route will be partially operational by May this year.
According to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials, the route from Gurgaon to Qutb Minar will be operational by the first week of May while from Qutb Minar to Central Secretariat, it will be functional in June.
The route in totality will connect Jahangirpuri to Gurgaon.
Delhi Metro chief E. Sreedharan, who was present at the trial run flag off ceremony, said: "Generally, a Metro route becomes operational a month after the trial run. However, in this case it will take four months because work on the Chhattarpur station is still under way."
The trial run Friday was between the HUDA City Centre to Guru Dronacharya metro station on the Delhi-Gurgaon border.
The three stations between these two in the 7.3-km line are Sikandarpur, MG Road and IFFCO Chowk. The approximate distance between stations in this line is 1.5 km. The construction of the Gurgaon Metro line had started in December 2006. Thanks Economic Times
